  1. Michael Pound

    help Help

    I bought an old pit bike engine and I am having trouble with the clutch, I have never seen a clutch like this to me it looks like a centrifugal clutch but I thought it would have an arm coming from the gear shifter and to the clutch to engage the clutch but mine doesn't. Please help me and tell me what it is and how it works so I can ride the bike properly. I can change gears but it is very rough feeling but that might be how this bike works I don't know, please help. If it helps it is a 125cc engine.

  3. so I'm wondering about buying a 250cc 2 stroke I just turned 15 and weigh about 120lbs and am looking for a dirtbike coming off a Yamaha banshee. I will be mostly riding in the sand dunes but do go up and ride semi technical trails and desert riding. i've heard that a 125 will not have enough power for sand riding. would I be able to hold the bike up being around 5'9-5'10? what would y'all recommend I look for. (not at all considering a 4 stroke because of the costs of rebuilds)

    Help Maybe?

    Hey. I just got a 94rmx with a complete rm makeover, but I don't have the tools to fix it yet so I've not ridden yet. I was wondering if anyone has tips about riding. And if anyone has some spare tool they could give a beginner. I'm pretty poor so could be some time till I get them myself. The pics my beaut
  5. ok, first thread, so if i mess up or do something wrong, im also 15 so remember any advice helps, Ive been riding dirt bikes since i was 3, before i even could ride a scooter, and ive always loved riding (sometimes a little too much) but that had always been dirt limited, until the beginning of this year i traded my (moped, which was actually incredibly illegal) as it went close to 70 with all the mods i put on it, for a 79 xl250, it ran, sort of, the guy sprayed gas in the cylinder and showed me it run, and i believed him. When i had gotten it home, the problems began adding up, it wasnt getting spark, the spokes on the front were all really loose, and someone really ****** up the paint job on the tank ( over the original honda stickers i might add) but this wasnt too bad, i saved up worked around my neighborhood and with my money, i got a supertrapp megaphone exhaust pipe ( someone butchered the old one completely) a new carb and airbox (someone took the airbox off and put metal mesh on, not even pods, just a piece of steel mesh over the tube) and a new cdi. This is when i started to realize i had gotten ripped off, first of all, it wasnt even a 250 engine, nor the right year, and there are no id numbers on the engine i can find to determine what year or size it is, so at this point i had blown all my money on parts for a bike that had the wrong engine. I immediately raced to ebay looking for a motor, no such luck, cheapest motor is 350 and its in terrible shape, i look on craigslist, nothing, i look on craigslist again a few hours later, and BOOM 79 xl250 runs & rides no title 300 dollars, perfect dent and scratch free original tank, oem seat, and every light they came with, and only 300 miles on it, im guessing it was kept in a barn, so i talk to the guy and i ask if i payed him 50$ if he would deliver it, and if he had paypal. he doesnt respond, i text him again after school that day "sorry i dont deliver, i sold it a few hours ago" instantly im even more frustrated, as this was exactly what i needed, but i have found another thing now, my neighbor has a 83 xl500 motor that runs and was fully rebuilt, hasnt even been put in a bike since he blew a head gasket on it, i was wondering how hard it would be to put this motor into the xl, i have very little fabricating experience, but my neighbor is a mechanic, he kinda laughed about it when i mentioned it to him, so im wondering, would it really be that difficult, thanks - Landon
  6. So I pulled out my old dirt bike to fix up and sell. Having been stored under a roof it ended up being seized. I Sprayed a little release oil down the cylinder and it kicked over fine. I bought a new spark plug right away and cleaned the carb from top to bottom replacing all the gaskets. The fuel lines were also shot so I replaced those and put in a fuel filter for added safety. I was able to start it right away. It idled perfect but had a slight knocking noise. Sounded like a loose chain. I pulled the flywheel and got to the cam tensioner. The tensioner moved fine, I then checked the spring and push rod to make sure they were within serviceable limits. It all checked out. I noticed the chain seemed to resting on the side of the tensioner sprocket. I got it in place and put everything back together. Checked cam timing as well. Started it up and there was still a noise. I then checked the primary drive gear for wear or possible a broken tooth. Looks good. The noise seems to be relevant to motor rpms. I realized I dont have feeler guages to check valve clearance. But I checked the valves. They seem to be good ( will go into town soon to buy some guages). Hoping to get some feedback on what it could be. I know it's hard to tell without a video. Will post one tomorrow when I'm back at my house. Thanks for reading
  7. My girlfriend and I just purchased two sr170tr bikes online. I put them both together, loctite bolts/screws with blue loctite, changed oil with 10w-40 non synthetic, oiled the air filter and filled them up with premium gas. My bike started after a couple kicks and is keeping idle/running fine. The second bike though has been extremely difficult to kick vs mine. It will occasionally kick but it stops/gets stuck so often you basically break your foot in the process. And when it does kick it has much more resistance in general. This is all based off of comparison with the working sr170tr. After many attempts to start the bike (checking spark plug, making sure wire connections are tight, and 100 difficult kicks) I noticed the manifold intake is cracked. Again this bike is new and never been started before so this was a major bummer... I have nearly zero experience with bikes and dont know how to go about this. Ive emailed the company that sent me the bikes about the broken manifold intake. But scratching my head about the difficult kick start issue. Will the broken intake have anything to do with the difficulty of kicking the engine? Thank you!
  8. Location: Spain - Although I travel to the US often. Dirtbike prices aren't that much different. Weight: 210 pounds/95kg - Have lost 110 pounds/50kg (Random but I feel happy about it since I weighed over 320 pounds) Height: 6 feet 4/2 meters Riding experience: I'm 18 now but used to ride at 10 with a mini Dirt bike. Haven't got a lot of experience and kind of forgot the clutch system but I'm sure I'll pick it up straight away. Was so fun. Riding Area: Mainly around Mud/Mud jumps and Forests. Budget: Would like to spend less than 2k$

    Suzuki 50jr piston help

    My 2000 Suzuki 50jr was making a clunking sound and quit. Got a compression gauge was able to only get 30 psi. Here is a pic of piston what's going on here. Checked the rod has slack side to side where the piston came off, does not feel like up and down is bad for slack. Was going to rebuild top end but not sure now what are the thoughts about crank bad? The noise was like a popping sound only under load pick up rear tire no noise. My son starts to ride the popping sound returns. New chain front and rear sprocket. Would the piston make that sound only when under load or would it make popping sound all the time, just trying to narrow it down. Need help my son ready to ride his first dirt bike

    Chain doesn't fit

    I bought a new chain and sprockets for my 04 cr125 and I cant figure out how to make it fit. Its too long so I was going to take a link out but then it'll be too short. Ive moved the adujster blocks from all the way forward to all the way back but it won't work either way. Chain and sprockets are all stock sizes.
  13. Hey guys I'm new to this site. I was wondering if you guys could help me out With my 2005 crf150f. I was wondering if there is an electric start kit for the bike. Is it possible to have electric start and kick-start at the same time? that would be preferable. if anything I need to try to make my bike electric start. I know the crf230f has a lot of the same Parts as the 150f, but could an electric start from 230f be placed into a 150f. I plan on making my 150f street legal and electric start would be nice to have for a daily driver. For now while I wait to accumulate answers, I will be buying a dual sport kit from tusk and setting that up. I hear, however, I might need a stator swap. is this true? does somebody have a link to a stator I can use? thanks for your help in advance guys.

    Crf 450 05

    Help I can get 0.20 in my intake shims on both sides is this bad ? Do i need change then or thay fine? It's a crf 450 05. What do I need to do if enything
  15. Hello! I need some help with diagnosing my motorcycle. I have a 2000 XR650L. The previous owner told me that at one point the bike was not given oil changes and the piston was damaged. The piston was bored out making it a "660". From what I understand no problems from there on. However, recently I was cruising at 65 on the highway when my chain suddenly broke. The whip from the chain broke open the air box, ripped off the slider and chain guards, and tore up the back sprocket. So, I installed a new airbox, air filter, new front sprocket, rear sprocket and a new chain. I thought I was back in business and was testing the bike out. Everything was running fine for about ten miles going below 55. When i tried to bring the bike up to higher speeds it totally lost compression at 65 or it just completely bogged down. I pulled over to inspect the bike and everything seemed fine, the bike never shut off. Afterward when I took off it would begin to bog down again at 35mph, especially when i would throttle it quickly. I have tried the bike one other time since then and would notice it skipping or bogging down even at 25, again especially when i try to throttle it quickly, This is my first motorcycle so I am on a steep learning curve and do not have much knowledge to come up with a diagnosis and solutions. If anyone has any ideas and suggestions it would be very much appreciated!! I can wait to get this baby dialed in again! Thank you
  16. I have a JAILING 2005 125cc Chinese dirt bike I cleaned the carb After it was sitting for 3 years not being ran. I changed the oil fuel lines flushed out the fuel tank with fuel.

    About brakes

    My friend bought a brand new Yz450f and he said he started noticing a scratching sound coming from the front brake science day one. According to him, overtime his front brakes have gotten worse and worse. Currently the brake lever can almost touch the grips when you pull it making it feel "squishy" and it brakes pretty bad. I tried to help diagnose the problem but I don't know much about brakes. Any ideas of what it could be? Thanks in advance.

    KTM 300 XCW Trouble shooting

    My 2010 KTM 300 XCW started behaving a few rides ago and I have been unable to locate the problem so if anyone could help me out I would be appreciative. So basically the "Mid Range" just disappeared. At low RPM and High RPM the bike is operating just like it use to. However in the middle zone the Power Doesn't seem to be getting transferred to the wheel. The first time I noticed this issue a hard rev seemed to restore it back to normal operating. After ride that the middle range has never returned. There were no changes on anything else in the bike. The spark plug checks out.

    RMZ 450 Oil Color Light brown

    So today i was running my 2008 Rmz 450 and out the crank case over flow oil started coming out but it seemed to me to be a light brownish color. I drained the oil and the oil was a light brown. i dont know if it could be coolant in the oil i have never experienced it. If it is what should i check first?

    Need Advice On Piston Replacement

    I was an idiot and accidentally over-tightened my spark plug on my KX450. In doing so I put a slight indention right in the center of the piston that you can see in the attached photo. I was wondering if this is enough damage to warrant me buying an entirely new piston? Or will I be okay to continue using this one?

    Blown engine

    I have a xr 200 r its ran like a champ for the past five years but started smoking about a year ago and burning oil ive heard there are tricks such as pouring coke or diesel down the heads and letting it soak in to help solve it smoking is there anything else or would this work thank you.
  22. I have a Honda crf50f and its been sitting for 6 years. I just got a new carburetor and it's now running, only 1 problem. It wont idle when the choke is on or up position, it will only idle if choke is in the down or off position. Any help on what it could be? Thanks.
  23. Okay I got a 1994 ktm 250 EXC last summer the bike ran great all year started first second kick always. This year when I got it out it seemed like it always just wanted to barely start but never would. I took the carb apart it was very clean but I cleaned it anyways and put it back together I also replaced the spark plug with the same plug I ran in it the previous summer I noticed I had a very weak spark compared to my rm 125 u had to Cup ur hands around it to see it at all if u took the cap off and put a screw driver up there and kicked it over it only tingled and didn’t give a good kick like some people say it is supposed to I replaced the plug anyways and it did start and Idled good for a min and then started to bog down I would give it gas and noting and then would rev real high I tried to ride it just around in first gear and the bike bogged down I would give it gas and it would be a full second and then lulch forward then it either died or u was done with it for the night. The next day I lowered the float bowl some since it seemed like it had too much gas but now I feel as though it is the spark not sparking the gas that is in there. I have tried several things the spark plug that is in it is not the manuals one but it ran fine with it last year so I don’t think that is the problem any suggestions I don’t see it very much online with a weak spark it’s always no spark.

    ttr Help! TTR 110 wont shift past 2nd gear

    I just picked up a 2008 ttr110. It had no battery, no key, no starter, anything that was extra and wasnt needed, stripping it bare. I was popping wheelies, slipped and the bike fell. Not a bad fall, but when i got up and drove off, only neutral, first, and second gear were available. When your in second and go to shift it feels like your in forth, where you cant shift up. The bike is semi, And i need help ASAP before i overpay to get it fixed (only place near me charges 89$ an hour) or what i need to fix it. If i have to, i will open up the engine.
  25. I am restyling an 05 yz125, I ordered cycra restyle plastics for the bike, and I do not know how to find out the year of the plastics since they're specifically made to fit on my bike. I am so confused on how to get graphics lol if anyone can help that'd be great.
